Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV will have a few years wait in between

Shinji Hashimoto, the producer of the Kingdom Hearts franchise, has told IGN there’s going to be a long wait between upcoming JRPGs Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV, due to the titles sharing a director: Tetsuya Nomura.

The kicker is, of course, that Square havn’t said how far Kingdom Hearts III is through development compared to Final Fantasy XV, so we don’t yet know which we’ll have to wait a few more years for Nomura to finish. When asked, Hashimoto said “We announced it at E3” becayse”A lot of people have wondered for the past couple of years if Square Enix has actually been working on Kingdom Hearts III

“But please, we all need you to understand there’s a lot to do.

“Both have Tetsuya Nomura as their director, so we can’t create these two big games at the same time. It’s a difficult job, as we want each game to be perfect in terms of quality.”

Thanks, IGN.
